It's no different than suing a gun manufacturer for not implementing a fingerprint recognition guard on a firearm involved in an accidental shooting (the technology is available), suing an automobile manufacturer for not implementing breathalyzer interlock on a vehicle involved in a drunk driving fatality (the technology is available), or suing the US Park Service for not putting a 20 foot climb proof fence with razor wire around the entire perimeter of the Grand Canyon (no technology required). It's impossible to guard against all possible forms of stupidity. As we've witnessed on numerous occasions just in the past year, there is no upper limit on stupidity. Just when you thought you've witnessed the stupidest thing humanly possible, whammo, you are proven wrong! If anything needs a military grade stupidity filter, it's Twitter, not FaceTime.
Once you curtail the means for truly fake news to reach its audience then it makes it easier to address editorial standards in traditional media. I'm not against flagging articles from "reputable" publications as "fake" if it meets the criteria. Most of them do respond to criticism when they don't meet journalistic standards where as fake news outlets just keep posting more fake news.

I have Duet running on a 12" iPad Pro and it's OK.
I suspect that:
- the rumored early 2017 iPad Pro will include the ability to connect directly to a Mac and be used as an auxiliary display, auxiliary KB/Trackpad and as a graphics tablet I/O.
- Adobe, Pixelmator, AutoDesk, Apple, etc. will supply Mac and iPad Pro apps that operate stand-alone and/or interconnected.
- there is a great potential for image editing on the iPad Pro for industries such as healthcare/patient care, Drafting/Construction, etc.
Sadly, this will take all the wind from Duet's sails.
